A little while back, we designed a shirt inspired by the Left Lion statue, an iconic landmark in Nottingham city centre (Shoutout Nottingham homeboy Joseph Else). 10% of the profit of each shirt was collected for Emmanuel House, raising a total of £150 for the support centre.
As some of you may know already, we also recycle surplus textiles and donate samples and old stock to local charities, such as Emanuel House. So head on down to their Charity shop in Hockley to bag yourself a Platypus bargain and help raise even more this winter!
Emmanuel House is a support centre based in Hockley, Nottingham which provides vital services to homeless and vulnerable adults.
"Our history centres around supporting the most vulnerable citizens in Nottingham without prejudice or judgement; with that in mind, we strive to provide diverse and accessible services that meet basic needs and empower individuals to make positive changes in their lives."
